- Cider Month - October 2022
Saturday 1 – Monday 31 October 2022
National CAMRA event
May & October are Cider and Perry Months!
CAMRA supports and campaigns for cider and perry throughout the year, and we spotlight it with celebrations twice a year. These are in October and May, during which time our local branches organise cider and perry events across the country.
Unlike real ale production, which can happen at any time of the year, real cider and perry is generally a seasonal product and can only be made when the fruit is ripe. Production is tied to a natural cycle of the apple and perry pear trees found in orchards around the country.
The month of May was chosen because it is when the orchards come into bloom and fruit begins to set which will then be harvested. It is when cider and perry production in the previous year reaches maturity and can start being enjoyed. It is also a time for celebration of the fruits of cider makers labour!
October is equally an extremely busy time for cider makers when production is in full flow and fruit is being harvested, milled, pressed and stored for fermentation.
